Welcome to the ForumsShields Fine Wines & Spirits
on Germantown Parkway, because Shields Hood is a wine educator and he regularly has tastings and teaches classes. He just opened last year so he is still working on building his stock, but most importantly, he knows wines! I recently read his Master of Wine Dissertation on---"Cooperage and the Grape". It was impressive research.
Buster's has a lot of inventory and there are some nice people in the wine area, especially John & Tiffany; and I think Tiffany teaches a wine course at the University of Memphis.
Kirby Wines & Liquors also has a nice selection.
As for Futures, I assume you are talking about Bordeaux Futures, but currently I am not buying any Bordeaux wines. You should check www.winex.com
. I have bought Futures from them in the past, and they have always been delivered on a prompt basis. Also, they have delivered everything that I've ordered...
Hope this helps.
